Imagine being compelled to do or say the worst possible thing at the worst possible time.  Like the “N word" in your class at school, farting on a date, or yelling “Bomb!” in an airport. This is just the tip of the ice berg that we begin to explore with our friend Ken who lives with Tourette syndrome! This episode is a bucket list conversation and it’s a frantic and chaotic as it sounds. Ken, along side of his wife and his stepson (whom all live with Tourette’s) sit dow and drop some knowledge on the fellas on the reality of living a life full of ticks, swears, and inopportune vocal outbursts.

Doctors writing like intoxicated 5 year olds, Taylor's debilitating snoring problems, Jeff's low grade narcolepsy, falling asleep in the middle of hanky-panky and much much more!

We kick off our batch of Toronto conversations with Mark Henick as we take a deep dive into his life long struggles with Depression! With 7 hospitalizations from suicidal thoughts/attempts Mark is no stranger to the mental health system. We dive into the meaning of dreams (horrifying dreams at that), fjord jokes, hospitalization, writing a book in the woods and much much more!   

Mark Henick dedicated his life from an early age to opening minds and creating change. Now he regularly speaks to diverse audiences about mental health, mental illness, suicide, advocacy, recovery, and hope. Mark’s TEDx talk on suicide is among the most watched in the world.

But he DID have the one blood cancer to rule them all, Hodgkins Lymphoma! We learn about how blood cancer isn't just a bunch of tumours floating around in your bloodstream, how your fathers Golf buddy might just save your life, the side effects of poisonous cancer meds, and the secret location of all your next airbnb sex toys.

The fellas hopped on a flight down to the big, bad, bitchin' state of Texas for the annual South By South West festival to have a conversation with Andrew Palmer, professional strongman, director of engineering of Distiller and Leukemia survivor! 

He's 3x the size of Jeremie. He eats 10,000 calories a day. He pushes dump trucks down the street for fun and he's kicking the living sh*t out of cancer. From painful burps, to blood blasting out of your nose, to mega casual doctors, to accepting death, the boys take a deep dive into the world of Leukemia, cancer and hulking out. 

The SXSW experience has been an unforgettable ride! If you dig this weeks episode be sure to share it via social media and tag @sxsw when you do! Thank you everyone for your support and love over the last couple of years. None of this would be possible without your support!

Erin Saari's life changed when she dove into a pool and broke her neck. What physics are at play when a shallow dive goes horribly wrong? At what trajectory must one leap to accelerate the body to speeds capable of pulverizing the spinal column vertebrae into dust? Well, this isn't a math podcast, so don't expect to find those answers here! But we definitely dive into the world of Quadriplegia and the challenges of surviving a severe neck break!

This week on Sickboy Podcast we talk about DEATH! The big scary inevitability that for whatever silly reason we all seem to ignore and or fear. Roxanne Walsh is an author, certified funeral celebrant and end of life planner. Perfect timing, turns out this is the night that Brian is going to die. Roxanne fills Jeremie and Taylor in on what the next steps are. DID YOU KNOW there are no laws about how long you can keep your dead loved one around as long as you are not committing an indignity to the body? Is pouring booze down their throat in celebration an indignity? Yup... it is... very much so. This episode is jam packed with fascinating tidbits about how to plan for your death! Be sure to tune in and share it with everyone you love to show them that you care and to help normalize the talk about death.

A busy episode with tons of jam packed action!

How do you tell your eleven year old daughter that you have a brain tumour that will very likely take your life? Do you censor yourself for her sake? Do you pretend it's not there? Do you just follow your gut and talk to her like any other human being? 

This week on Sickboy the fellas sit down with one of the coolest moms they've ever met, Charmaine! Blind in one eye, diagnosed with bipolar and sitting on a ticking time bomb brain tumour in her right frontal lobe that could take her out at any point. Are mental illness and brain tumours related? (We have no friggin idea) Is Lollapalooza kid friendly? (most definitely) Are Jeremie and Taylor too hard on Brian? (Too be determined). We love Charmaine! We love this recording and we know you will too!

This week on Sickboy we sit down with Will MacGregor; a man whos braved the medical system, run the gauntlet of tests and treatments, and has advocated for himself to receive the care he needs. His mysterious and fascinating story involves a diagnosis of Wolf Parkinson White Syndrome that has lead to a series of unfortunate complications that we explore in this in-depth chat.

With Taylor away in sunny Nicaragua, the guys invited special guest host, Andrew The Camera Guy, to help reign things in. Evidently, by the length of this conversation, he did a shit job at keeping things on track… or perhaps this was just a case of a long rollercoaster-of-a-story detailing Will’s battle with WPW and it’s associated complications! After listening to this episode you’ll pretty much be a doctor, so hold on tight, take some notes, and get ready to learn a shit load! 
Jan 29, 2018

This week on Sickboy we're LIVE from SAIT in Calgary Alberta! The fellas sit down with very special guest Matthew Corkum! He's a meteorologist, has his Ph.D., drives a sports car, has incredibly jacked biceps, all the while is dealing with Spastic Cerebral Palsy. Jeremie's thinks if you cross your eyes they'll stay that way. Taylor invites friends over to watch him bike in his living room, Brian tells horrible wind jokes, and Matt reminisces about growing his giant pumpkins patches. The drinks we're flowing and the crowd was incredible! We had an amazing time at SAIT and can't wait to go back.

Jer, Bri, Tay and Bryde of Turn Me On Podcast sit down with Lesley to talk about her experience in living with two vagina's and two uterus's?! The fellas are already confused by how the plumbing normally works down there... double down on the amount of cervixes, uteruses, fallopian tubes and ovaries all inside one human body and they are a lost cause. How many tampons does one need? Can you get pregnant on both sides? Is it double the pleasure? Many of these questions answered and more. Don't miss out. 

Thanks to Bryde from Turn Me On podcast popping by to help keep the fellas in line. Check out Turn Me On over on iTunes or at turnmeonpodcast.com - https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/turn-me-on/id1200938612?mt=2

This week on Sickboy Podcast we chat with Marnie about an experience that isn't her own but one that has changed her life forever. Paranoid Schizophrenia. She grew up in a household where Mom and Dad don't get along. They fall into a devastating divorce, and soon after mom begins to believe that drones with lasers are following her everywhere and silently attacking her internal organs and slowly killing her. A jam packed episode of heartbreak, hospital psych ward escapes, secret letters, brain washing and home made moats dug around the house and most certainly not up to code.

So when we found ourselves wondering how music affects our health, our emotions, and our lives, who better to speak with other than the legendary Laurie Brown?
